Fishing Reports

It’s that time of year again, only this year there are actually fish to catch! After a couple pretty dismal winters, the Fall has some fish that appear to be holding over this year. Today I found fish in all the usual spots. The Blue-Winged Olive hatch was skinnier that I’d hoped. By noon there were a few little bugs around. Most of the rising fish were eating just subsurface. I fooled several under a…

We are coming closer and closer to the final days of fishing on the Lower Deschutes from Warm Springs down to the Northern Boundary of the Warm Springs Reservation. As of January 1st, this section of the river will be closed for angling, period. This section of the river will be closed until the end of April! If you are eager to fish the Lower Deschutes River, you can still head down to the Maupin…

The Crooked River is one of our favorite places to jam out to for a quick day on the river! The roads are generally pretty nice and clear and the crowds are relatively thin. You may see a few more people out there this year with a so far rather poor snow season on the mountain but as we all know, once that snow starts to drop heavily the fishing crowds get thinner and thinner!…

The Metolius River can be an awesome place to escape to for a few hours during the winter to chase some of our finned friends! As many know, the bull trout leave Billy Chinook to chase the Kokanee during their spawn time. After the spawn finishes, the bulls will stay in the river to do the same. So, this can be a good time to find some big bull trout with throwing streamers and  other…

Oh the beautiful Crooked River! It is always a pleasure to head out to the Crooked for a quick morning or afternoon fish.The flows have been in the 80’s for a few weeks now and the fishing has been consistent. The whitefish are in full spawn on the Crooked RIver! This means egg, egg, egg time! If you have been into the shop recently inquiring about the Crooked, we have probably been loading you up…

The Fall River has continued to fish well! Remember, with regulation changes last year, we are able to fish below the falls year round. This time of year can make for some adventuring below the falls, looking for fish that may have pushed up from the Deschutes. You can spend some time hoofin it around, finding fish here and there. Just keep off the private party! You’ll know when you get to it. Anyway, as…

This is a magical time on the upper 10 miles of the Lower Deschutes. As sad as we are to see another season coming to a close, there is always a flurry of activity down there as late-fall leans into winter. There are chinook salmon now on their redds and the whitefish are beginning their spawn too. This means that there is a lot of egg protein floating around. Every fish in the river keys…

Thankfully, there are still some fish hanging out in the Fall! We love that and we love getting out there to trick those fish into eating our flies. Sometimes it can be a bit tricky but if you are persistent, you can get into them! If you are getting fish to chase/follow your flies but are not committing, try to taper down your tippets. Fishing 6x fluorocarbon or powerflex  plus.  Powerflex plus is great because it…

WIth some seasonal closures going on over the past week, keep in mind that sections the Metolius are included in that! Remember, the Met is now closed from the Headwaters to Allingham Bridge. Fishing from below Allingham Bridge and downstream is fair game! The fishing on the Metolius has been quite good! The nymphing has been great throughout the river system. We recommend fishing subsurface until the BWOs come off in the afternoon. If you…

Over the last few weeks, the Crooked River has been dropping down into the winter flow stages. This has been great for the bug activity! Especially on a nice, warm fall day. With the right weather and conditions, the blue-winged olive hatch can be pretty great. Coming off several times throughout the day, normally in the late morning and early afternoon. The river is currently at about 90 cfs.  Even if you do not see…
